I am just had my surgery yesterday . Today I am up and around with hardly much pain. I was so scared and anxiety for months before the surgery. I had Dr. Alvarez do it. He is great and his surgical technique is right on. I have a very low pain tolerance and I am doing great.

Been a while since I showed my BP pals some love...I'm 10 days out doing really good with my sleeve. Taking it day by day. I pray all is well with you all. (All who have been sleeved this month and all that are still waiting in line). So excited to be on this journey with each of you! Cheers to us for taking this big leap and re-claiming our lives!

I had mine done on the 30th. The 31st was the worst day due to nausea. Biggest complaint is weakness and tired. Started Vitamins today hope it helps. Getting liquids in with no problem. I can say everyday I feel better. Family support is the key. I normally am one controlling everything. Letting someone else take the reins for awhile is helping me. This site has been a lifesaver. Thanks so much for sharing. I read them all. Hope to be able to help someone too.

Lovely mama are you getting enough fluids n Protein? I was also sleeved on the 28th n I didn't begin to feel close to normal until I met my requirements. It wasn't and still isn't easy.

Good luck to you!

I feel you with the shakes. I have to mix mine with milk. That's the only way I can stomach them and it actually tastes good with milk.

Hi tomorrow I'm 5 weeks out! Went back to work Friday for a few hours. I'm still not getting enough calories or Protein in but trying. I went to the movies with the family today and had a tiny bit of popcorn. I'm so full! Don't think I'll be doing that again to soon protein is much more important! I'm thrilled not having my lap-band any longer! I had it for 8 years 2 totally unfilled.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.

      It's Saturday!!! My fiance and I are out doing yard work and I made the mistake of not staying hydrated before going out so now my body is shaking and weak. I have my pre-op appointment Tuesday, the 2nd and I am trying my hardest to lose another 2 lbs by then.

        You got this!! When I had the sleeve I cried every day during the liquid phase, It was during the super-bowl! I was sooo hungry I sucked on a piece of pork rind. LOL
